5. Shan-Yu (Mulan)

3. Scar (The Lion King)
Mufasa’s evil brother will do anything and everything just to be the King of the Pride Lands. He’s even willing to kill his brother and his nephew in order to achieve his evil plan. While Scar only succeeds in killing his brother, he persuades his nephew that it was his fault, which leaves Simba to be guilty for the death of his father. He even convinces the cub to flee and never return.
2. The Queen (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs)
The Queen has always believed that she is the most beautiful woman but when she reaches the age where her youthful glow is fading, she schemes to have her lovely stepdaughter Snow White killed and collect her heart to feed on it. She uses witchcraft to turn herself into an old woman and give a poisoned apple to Snow White.
1. Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty)
The wickedness of Maleficent knows no boundaries. Her sinister plans are all formulated out of spite. The heartless Maleficent casts a curse on Aurora to make sure that the princess will die on her sixteenth birthday by a prick on her finger.
